Kitjanat Chalermkerdsrinuansakul


The purpose of this scholarly paper is to provide key ideas for managing elementary education in the 21st century. The 21st century alliance offers a framework for 21st-century learning that includes knowledge and critical abilities that must be cultivated in both current and future learners. Students must learn in a variety of basic disciplines to acquire information, understanding, and skills that can be used in real life, have knowledge of key 21st-century concepts, and develop and put their research and creative talents to work. In order to succeed and reach their objectives, the organizations in charge of delivering education must concentrate on teaching students 21st century abilities, in terms of essential topics, crucial ideas, crucial abilities, and necessary support structures for 21st century education. Today’s learning of the subject matter (content) should be self-discovery, with teachers guiding and designing activities that allow individual students to assess their own learning progress. Skills for living in the 21st century contain subjects that are important but not sufficient for learning for living in the 21st century. This core subject will result in the development of a conceptual framework and significant strategies for learning management in interdisciplinary content. Core subjects include mother tongue and major world languages, arts, mathematics, government and civics, economics, science, geography, and history. Incorporating 21st-century abilities into all core courses while fostering knowledge in core subjects is interdisciplinary research or a research theme for the 21st century.


Keywords: concepts, principles, primary education management, 21st century.
